The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!





Chippie for Tailwagger 234.jpg

Chippie and her new friend Joey are BFFs


Chippie has been E-tube fed for 6 weeks in order to make her healthy enough to have surgery to remove the blockage in her esophagus. When the tube was emplaced she weighed 4.1 lbs. and was very weak. She now weighs 6.2 lbs, is full of energy and acting like the 10 month old puppy that she is.


Her surgery has been scheduled for May 12. She will have to stay in the hospital at least three days in intensive care, where she can be watched around the clock.

The inflatable blue donut around Chippie's neck protects the feeding tube opening. The cost of her surgery and intensive care is estimated to cost between $4,000 and $6,000. That's a whole lot more money than ECR can gather on its own. Please help.
